A Massey University professor who wants to revamp milk-tanker design and develop the manuka honey industry has been recognised with a top food science industry award.

Professor Richard Archer received the JC Andrews Award at the Institute of Food Science and Technology's conference in Christchurch.

A principal investigator at the Riddet Institute at Massey, Archer specialises in food-process engineering, biotechnology and commercialisation.

He said previous winners of the JC Andrews Award were his industry heroes.

"Without their work we would be a poorer and much more boring place, still exporting butter and cheese in wooden boxes, whole frozen carcasses and not much else, and eating a diet of white bread, mutton roast and cordial," Archer said.

He spoke of his ambitions for milk tankers and manuka honey in a speech at the institute conference.
